Self Machine

When I Blame Coco recorded “Self Machine”, a handful of remixes were released shortly after by dP preferred artists like Jakwob, La Roux, and Sub Focus. Youtube user, paulie12986, put it nicely (in regards to the Jakwob remix):

“One for the summer. As ever, it’s a pleasure to get a Jakwob remix, even if he probably only did make this one because Sting slipped him a few $… Either way it’s great. Find a sunset, turn the speakers up, grab a beer and find something to smoke. Happy days, Enjoy”

I Miss Coachella

I love this song, it has a very mellow nu-disco feel

Priors – What You Need (Hey Champ Remix)

Ferry Corsten recently released his new mix CD, Once Upon A Night, this is the first song off the album and I’m really liking the piano

Yuri Kane – Right Back

I know it’s not new, but I love the Bag Raiders’ ridiculously awesome indie-pop beat!

Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars (feat. Rhys of ‘Ted & Francis’)

This La Roux mix is really unique, the steel drums add a really cool chill-out vibe

La Roux – Quicksand (Boy 8-Bit remix)

This Crystal Castles live performance is pretty good, the intro was wonderfully done

Crystal Castles vs. Health – Crimewave (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)

Pitbull and Benny Benassi (one of my favorite sets at Coachella) put together an awesome dance mix with this mash-up of “Satisfaction” and “Move Shake Drop”

Pitbull – Move Shake Drop (Satisfaction Cover) (Mix Munkies Extended)

This is a cool drum n bass mix of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” that really drops at 2:23

Rihanna – Rude Boy (TC Remix)

This fuzzy/bubbly mix of Tegan & Sara’s “Alligator Tears” oozes Morgan Page’s style. Great beat, unique vocals

Tegan & Sara – Alligator (Morgan Page Remix)

Miike Snow was fantastic at Coachella, looked nothing like I thought he did :P but Felix da Housecat recently mixed “Silvia” to the best that I’ve heard, enjoy

Miike Snow – Silvia (Felix da Housecat Remix)

Designer Drugs have been pumping out a buch of tracks lately, one of their latest, a mix of Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” adds a tastefully wobbly bassline and catchy two-steppin’ breakbeat

Treasure Fingers – Cross The Dancefloor (Designer Drugs Remix)

Finishing up this post with “Dead-Mow Five” (joke) mixing Eric Prydz’s “Pjanoo” (for the millionth time) from his set from WMC 2010

Eric Prydz – Pjanoo (Deadmau5 WMC 2010 Edit)

Janelle vs. Johnny

This progressive house piece has been a top play for me lately. I really dig the grungy guitar pick up @ 1:15, it’s quite nice!

• David Vendetta – She Turns Around (Cosa Nostra Mix) (Favorite)

Another typical, somewhat epic/dramatic, Benny Benassi remix (always a fan of his).

• Tiësto & Sneaky Sound System – I Will Be Here (Benny Benassi Dub)

Here’s a static, lazy dub remix of La Roux’s “I’m Not You Toy” (finally a remix of a track besides “In For The Kill” and “Bulletproof”) I swear I hear frogs @ 2:43, but I’m also wearing headphones…

• La Roux – I’m Not Your Toy (Nero Remix) √++

This song is well titled, it’s got a good grind – sounds a lot like Justice, IMO.

• Wolfgang Gartner – Undertaker (Original Mix) √++

Alex Metric recently remixed the new Gorillaz track, “Stylo,” to what I thought was better than the original. He’s mixed a lot of disco-funk into these next tracks.

Gorillaz – Stylo (Alex Metric Remix)

Bloc Party – One More Chance (Alex Metric Remix)

Phoenix – Lisztomania (Alex Metric Remix)

However, his original work has a back-to-basics electronic sound.

Alex Metric – Deadly On A Mission (Dub)

Okay, so I’m a little embarrassed to post Eiffel 65 (90’s flashback!), but I like this remix. The choppy piano riffs really make it (for me at least).

Eiffel 65 – Blue 2009 (DJs From Mars Attax Extended Remix)

This song is SO Euro! But it always puts me in a good mood :D give it a chance!

• Gigi d’Agostino – I’ll Fly With You (L’amour Toujours)

The piano is like my ultimate weakness in music. This song is really peaceful in kind of a sad way, it’s one of my favorites

Wamdue Project feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn – Forgiveness

• Wamdue Project feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn – Forgiveness (EK’s Love U Mix)

I really like this song (again with the piano) and its video (I love it when they jump into the pool and the beat drops in sync).

• Sébastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (extended intro version)

Sébastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan’s Magic Wand Mix) (video version)

Accelerate

A cool tribal-esk, floaty song done by CFCF to start this post off

CFCF – You Hear Colours

The Black Ghosts are amazing – this song truly exhibits their unique sound in so many ways

• The Black Ghosts – I Want Nothing (Extended Mix) (love)

Two version of Dadahack’s newest track “Hello”

• Dadahack – Hello Dust feat. Hannah Robinson

• Dadahack – Hello (instrumental)

This La Roux remix starts as a bassy atmospheric dub. However, it picks up into a fast paced breakbeat rhythm toward the end

• La Roux – In For The Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Mix)

Some nu-disco sounding tracks. I haz soft spot for Fred Falke

• Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks (Fred Falke Extended Remix)

Heavinz – Ride (Matt Hughes Remix) (old favorite)

More breakbeats from Chip Chop who just released their debut five-track EP, “Launch Blank,” today

Chip Chop – Launch Blank

Chip Chop – Puking Rainbows (I actually bought this off iTunes, weird)

Chromeo fans might enjoy this song from Ocelot

Ocelot – Our Time (Treasure Fingers Remix)

Could This Be Real?

An Upbeat Dubstep Tune to Start off this Post!

• Sub Focus – Could This Be Real

Hey Champ has been out for a while now, but the remix below is a refreshing take on the original!

• Hey Champ – Cold Dust Girl

• Hey Champ – Cold Dust Girl (Only Children Remix)

This song brings me a good vibe – I just recently found out the Cary Brothers is the artist’s name and not two brothers named Cary…Check it out

• Cary Brothers – Ride (Tiësto Radio Edit) (Love)

This La Roux remix is one of my favorites (of all remixes), the culmination of the vocals, synths, drums, clash, etc. @ 3:57 is truly glorious! I think it matches her singing MUCH better than the original, producing kind of a low, sultry sound

• La Roux – Bulletproof (Foamo Remix)

Hey Boys and Girls (that’s you) listen to this track right now

Evermore – Hey Boys and Girls (Diamond Cut Remix)

These songs are a little more femme but awesome

• Mason vs. Princess Superstar – Perfect Exceder (Radio Edit)

• Supermode – Tell Me Why (I like the pickup at 3:55)

My Ringtone!

Sébastien Léger – Majuro (Original Mix)
